NO DOGS ALLOWED ON TRAIN But Conductor Had Embarrassing Mo-; ment When He Undertook to Ban leh Canine to Baggage. Soou after the train had started, j I the conductor, in collecting his fares, i noticed a small white dog, with a bushy tall and bright black eyes, cosily ; sitting on a seat beside a young lady, j ! She was quite pretty, but the conduo- j tor’s duty was plain, j “I’m very sorry, madam," he said ! with unusual suavity, “but it’s against the rules to have dogs In the passen ger cars.” “Oh! dear! Is that so?” replied the young lady, looking beseechingly from her brown eyes. “What shall I do? I can’t throw him away. He’s a present ; for my aunt.” “Throw him away! By no means, miss! We’ll put him In the baggage car, and he’ll be just as happy as the robins in spring,” “What —put iny nice white dog In your dirty old baggage car?” “I’m sorry, miss, but the rules of this company must be enforced. He shall have my overcoat to lie on, and the brakeman will give him crackers and milk every time he opens his mouth.” “I Just know somebody will steal him,” she objected. But the conductor was firm, and called out to the brakeman, who was carrying a signal flag. “Here, Mike, put this dog In the bag gage car. and tell them to take the best of care of him.” The brakeman picked up the dog as carefully as If It were a baby. There was « sudden twitching of the facial muscles, and he hastily said to the con ductor : “Here, you Just hold him a minute till I put this flag away.” Out of the car door he went, and ] held on to the brake wheel, shaking like a man with ague. The conductor laid his hands on the j dog, and then — | “Why—wh-why—this ts a worsted dog!” he gasped. “Yes, sir," replied the little miss, demurely; “didn’t you know that?” “No, miss, I am sorry to say I didn’t know that.” He dropped the dog and began shout ing: "Tickets! Show your tickets!” Life-Saving or Drowning? In an article on “Sports In Girls’ Camps” In St. Nicholas, Anna Worth j ington Coale describes the tests for | rescue work, or life-saving require ment of the United States Volunteer Life-Savers. These tests, which are taken by many of the older girls In camp, put a good deal of zest Into the swimming. “In order to pass the tests you must I know at least three different holds which a drowning person would be likely to make while struggling and how to break them. You must also j be able to dive to the bottom and bring up a supposedly drowned person : In proper form—head first—and tow | her ashore, using any one of three ap- ; proved methods of carrying, as, for ex | crooking the elbow under the j chin of the victim and swimming on ! the side. You must then demonstrate * an approved method of resuscitation, I usually the Schaeffer method, which requires only one person to apply It. The first thing on reaching shore Is to empty the water from the lungs— which, by the way, Is never more than two or three teaspoonfuls In amount— and induce breathing by pressure on j ribs. If you have ever been called upon to be the victim for someone’s practice you will understand why It Is still u question In some camps which | form of death Is to be preferred ; life- j . saving or mere drowning?” Violets. i Stern-faced, tired, sorefooted from unaccustomed tramping, the man paced I along the side of a roadway 20 miles from the city In the afternoon sun shine. Beside the road sat a little boy and girl, each timidly clutching a bas ; ket of bunches of wood violets. The children looked at the man’s stern, tired face and timidly kept back the words of invitation they wanted to speak. As the man paced by he caught a pale, twinkling little smile In the eye ; of the boy—and out of memory’s gal lery there flashed a picture—the pic ture of another timid, barefoot boy In the dust of a country roadside, a boy who wanted to make a fortune In nick els and dimes from his primitive mer chandise—and hadn’t the courage to cry his wares. “Give rne one of your bouquets, my i boy,” he said. And he went on. Behind him a rosy ; smile on two little faces and with him a ray of sunshine on the head of the boy of 40 years ago.—Detroit Free Press. Deep Sea Diving Now Feasible. Experiments made by the British ad miralty and the United States navy prove that deep-sea diving is feasible, says Popular Science Monthly. It has been found that the shorter the time a diver takes in getting to | the bottom the better, because the j body absorbs less nitrogen. Also, the diver must have at least one and one half cubic feet of air per minute at all depths. Lacing the legs of the diver’s suit increases his stability and permits him to come to an erect position with ease. It also lessens the danger of j his falling or being suddenly blown j I to the surface. — —— Glria of Other Days, “Speaking of the peaches we knew I W years ago-- ” “Yes.” “Some of them seem W be pretty Wfii preserved.” j !
